the first "canadian" president?

Remember "Canadian" as a new racist code word?

Keith Knight of "The K Chronicles" asks "Is America Ready for a Canadian President?"

Just some random Canadosity, thanks to James.

If you follow the link to the K Chronicles and get dumped to Salon's front page, click on "Comics", then find the Mar 26, 2008 episode of K Chronicles. You might have to sit through an ad.

I forgot about that slang for Canadian, but that's brilliant! I wish I could find an RSS feed for Keef, because I keep forgetting to read him.

The first Canadian president apparently comes tomorrow night on the CBC...

Oh good, that oughta help with the paranoia. :)

Yeah, I was saying that to a friend in Connecticut... our age-old national angst made manifest with millions of dollars of taxpayer's money. :) Well, it ought to be worth a hoot. And it's got both Paul Gross and Tom Skerritt in it, and I'd cross the street to see either of them, so that's a good start. Turns out Tom Skerritt's dad is from Alberta, so he counts as one of us anyway. Well, you should know the drill by now. If you were born in Timbuktu but delivered two lines of dialog in a movie shot in Moosejaw, you count as a "Canadian actor". :)

In truth, you have to work hard not to be counted as a Canadian for cultural purposes. It isn't easy.

Hopefully I can see it on DVD eventually.

Have you seen Idealistic Pragmatist's "What do you call...?" It's excellent. I'll see if I can find it for you.
